How To Change iTunes Password
Learn how to change your iTunes password if you suspect your account has been compromised—your password could end up a thief's ticket to free movies, games, apps and more. It is a good idea to change your iTunes password every so often anyway, simply because you never know who could be looking over your shoulder if you log in on a public computer, or in a public setting.
Change your ITunes password to something that is unique, easy to remember and includes both numbers and letters. If you really can't remember your password, then you can write it down—but don't store the paper with the password near your computer or on your iPod. The word "Password" is not a good password to choose, and neither is your own name, phone number or street address.
- Power up your computer and open up the iTunes program. You can also dock your iPod or iPhone and wait for iTunes to open automatically.
- Select "iTunes Store" from the options on the upper left hand side of the screen.
- When prompted, sign into your iTunes account with your existing username and password.
- Select "View Account". You maybe asked to re-enter your existing password at this time, depending on your current settings.
- Select"Edit Account" from the list of options provided in the menu.
- Enter your new password, which should be different from your old password. You will be promoted to enter it a second time to confirm.
- Select "Done" to exit the editing area and remember your new password.
